Teaching methods

During the lectures will be illustrated and discussed the content of the course.
The course will be supported by tutorials, in order to provide the opportunity for each student to be able to measure in various clinical situations with the practical use of the main diagnostic tools discussed in a theoretical way during lectures.

Assessment methods and criteria

The first step in assessing the student' learning will be made through an written question on several topics of the course program.
After this test student' knowledge will be made checking his analytical capacity regarding clinical cases of typical and atypical presentation of neuro-ophthalmological disorders; in this way the teacher will evaluate not only the memory performance of each student related to study and repetition of the lessons, but also his ability of synthesis, thinking, learning, pondering and fusion of the elements of study in itself.
